Grace Buchanan

Her landscapes, many of the American South, still lifes and figurative works are filled with vibrant color and light and a strong sense of place.

Grace Buchanan’s love of art came early while growing up in Pickens, Mississippi in a large family, which included artists of several generations. "I felt the importance of art just by observing how older family members treasured it."  As early as eleven she found art her favorite subject, and with family, visited the studio of noted Mississippi oil painter, Marie A. Hull.

After graduating from Ole Miss in 1975, having majored in Southern Literature, and Art History, she was classically taught by Mrs. Hull's student, Alice Reilly of Jackson. Other early studies included, the Henry Hensche method, taught by well known Delta colorist, Sammy Britt, where she found a love of painting en plein air.

Further studies followed, with many of the most recognized artists in America. Buchanan refined her skills and became confident in her own style.  "Art is a never ending learning and growing process", she says," the excitement is in the discovery."
Buchanan has been featured in publications, exhibited in local and regional shows and galleries and has taught workshops around Mississippi.   She was named an Honored Artist in 2014 by the Mississippi Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Whether painting well known landmarks and subjects locally, or far from home, she wants to "capture the beauty of the atmosphere and light as it affects objects". She works primarily in oils.
